We’ve been telling our oldest we would take her on a special date night (without little sister) for what seems like ages. In the last few weeks it seems as if she has been hitting milestone after milestone and we have been so proud of her. *Sidenote: I wish someone would have warned about the multitude of feelings that run through you with kids on a DAILY basis – I always feel so proud of the girls while also experiencing a tinge of sadness that they are growing up (tear emoji).
So the promise of a date night with just Mom and Dad has been hanging out there for quite a while. Finding Dory seemed like the best opportunity! I arranged for our babysitter to come watch little sister and I bought tickets for Finding Dory the Friday it opened at the cutest little movie theatre in our area. That Friday we went and grabbed pizza by the theatre and then about 25 minutes before the show time walked over to the theatre. It was already packed! We grabbed the last available row and sat down (which to be honest, ended up being great seats).
